What does this look like to you?

I have 3x Radion XR30W's across a 5 foot mixed reef Tank. They are on about 70% and have noticed this after coming back from a weeks holiday.

I had the lights on the tank for about 2 months before going away and seemed ok.

Too me it looks like its burning the corals, did you start off low n then increase it slowly over time?

I can't remember to be honest. I pretty much matched the PAR with my old LED unit and left it at that. It was fine for a couple of months but went funny when I was on holiday. However they seem to be getting better again now. Maybe one of my fish decided to try eating it and nipped at them.

Too much light, move it or turn down light
